Again with the Dutch tool chest... #4: Paint it black

09-24-2016 07:13 AM by Fraxinus | 0 comments »

I decided to do a rabbet all around the edge of the lid, matching the rabbet on the fall front (3/4” wide). Used my Stanley 78. It went pretty well, though did get a bit of tear out on one of the breadboards. Dealing with the crossgrain orientation of the panel and the breadboards is a bit challenging when it comes to planing and sanding. Need to figure that one out. After that it was time to paint. Yay! Been looking forward to that for a while. I decided on milk paint when I fir...

Again with the Dutch tool chest... #3: Hinges, filling, runners

09-24-2016 06:43 AM by Fraxinus | 0 comments »

I spent an evening or two after work this week chopping the hinge mortises and fitting the hinges. The main thing I wanted to avoid was a big gap between the lid and the rim of the case. I also wanted to make sure the lid would stay open. I managed to chop the mortises pretty much exactly how I wanted it, so the fit of the lid to the rim was nice and tight. At first the lid was almost exactly 90 degrees when opened so just a bump sent it falling, but after some fiddling I managed to get it...

Lathe Disc Sander table with T-track

09-24-2016 06:13 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 5 comments »

Boy and Girls, This blog is to supplement a project I penned earlier, regarding Lathe disk sander with micro adjustment. Please click on the link to read about the micro adjustment feature of the brains behind the underlying mechanism. Just a quick memory twister…. This table was designed using Sketchup and here is a link to it for anyone interested. Again I have not provided measurement as everything depends on the person undertaking the build and their respective timber and hardw...

Workbench build #1: Rockler heavy duty front vise

09-23-2016 11:16 PM by curliejones | 5 comments »

The vise that Rockler sells for a quick release front vise tagged item no. 27838 is painted black. I bought one today that was never installed but the guy had misplaced the two nuts on the front. Anyone know the size and thread pitch of these two? I doubt you had to buy these since they came with the vise, but I thought I’d ask??They look to be 1/2” threads and fairly coarse, but a std. 1/2×13 nut does not work. It begins to bind when only halfway threaded on. I am hoping tha...

Summer Uke Build #5: Joining Back, Gluing Neck Block, Adding Rosette

09-23-2016 10:57 PM by onoitsmatt | 0 comments »

In the last few weeks I’ve managed to steal a few hours to work on the uke and make a little progress. The weather is cooling a bit so that makes it easier to be in the garage for longer periods of time. I jointed the back using the miter planer and glued it up. I started to make my own wood inlay for the back stripe, but it was just going to be too labor intensive so I went to Rockler and just bought some inlay strip for about $15. I bought a Veritas Mini Router to route out the ...

Plant stand #9: Finally complete

09-23-2016 04:14 PM by BJODay | 0 comments »

I received the tile and the plan was to cut a mortise in the top and drop it in. I used a forstner bit to hog out the bulk of the waste and used chisels to complete the job. The drill wandered and gouged the top outside of the mortise area. I thought okay, I can add a walnut inlay frame around the inset tile. Well lots of hemming and hawing about how well this would work and look. Finally decided to start the top over. Took only a few hours of labor. This time I used a plunge route...

SHOP 2016 #1: The start

09-23-2016 01:40 AM by canadianchips | 4 comments »

YES. I am building my own workshop….....had plans to move old barn, that fell through. The site I have found is a friends property. It already had a cement pad 24×32 . The original building is no longer there. I started 3 days ago. I am thinking I can build the shell for very low dollars. I salvaged metal from a hail storm. 34 ft sheets for $34. Works out to about 1/3 cost of new metal in this part of Canada.The design is a horse barn style. 16 ft slope along north to 12 ft peak, ...
